Remember when all the climate change rheumatoid arthritis causes and cures warned that winters would be WARMER and snowfall would DECREASE? Is type 1 diabetes reversible? Cellphones driving modern humans to the brink of insanity? Is Autism a side effect of metal toxicity?
Where is all the expended brass? Eating grapes and other fruits rich in potassium has been shown to reduce rheumatoid arthritis symptoms preventing painful gout attacks. Chilled, baked, roasted, or grilled, grapes enhance all foods from appetizers to salads and side dishes. It has recently been recognized that adding grapes to the diet can also lower uric acid in the blood stream helping to prevent gout. Grapes may be eaten straight-up or blended into a fruit juice smoothie with other fruits or vegetable juices to help maintain alkalinity in the blood and urine. When the blood and urine are kept slightly alkaline, acid wastes are more easily eliminated resulting in reduced attacks of rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and painful gout recurrences.
Uric acid crystals, formed as a result of lowered kidney function, are dissolved in alkaline urine, allowing them to be removed from the blood stream and preventing deposits in the joints of gout patients. Regular meals or snacks may be modified with additional nutrition by including grapes. Create a fruit juice swirl by mixing grapes in a blender with strawberries, blue berries, tart cherries, a spoonful of raw honey or maple syrup and a splash of water for a delicious snack and arthritis pain management. Avoid syrup on pancakes and top them with grapes and strawberries instead.
